Hi, I am trying to get a simple vpn tunnel up and running between two sites. One end uses a juniper netscreen firewall and the other end is a pfsense software based firewall. Should these two devices have any trouble talking? I feel like I am 85% complete but am missing some steps. This is my first attempt of a vpn tunnel. If anyone has done this between these two devices and has any input or patience to work with me that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,
  It appears my link is actually up but I can't ping between the subnets. Do I have to do routing and so forth to make this happen? I assume by providing the local subnets during the setup that I wouldn't need to touch the routing?

Thanks
